2814 is a collaborative project of original music by t e l e p a t h テレパシー能力者 and HKE.
‘Birth Of A New Day’ was the second album of collaborative duo of HKE and Telepath, working under the name 2814. A follow up to a relatively minor hit at the time – the self-titled debut ‘2814’, ‘Birth Of A New Day’ ended up becoming a radiant realisation of the original project’s intention, as both artists expertly mixed and matched ambient palettes and styles to create the vague and distant neon utopia – a sense of romantic melancholy and longing peppered by the suggestive sounds of the world the music inhabited.
An album that shaped an era, ‘Birth Of A New Day’ was quite literal in a prescient manner as it shook the foundations of the underground and catalysed the ‘dreampunk’ movement coming out of the post-vaporwave era – helping define the aesthetic of Dream Catalogue as a record label in the process.
Finally made available again having been out of print for a few years now, 2814's cyberpunk indebted view of the future Atarashi Ni~Tsu no Tanjo [sic] is considered the pinnacle of Vaporware [sic] ambient underground.
Here's what we said when it was originally released; An absolute diamond in the post-genre internet world of ambient electronica Atarashi Ni~Tsu no Tanjo [sic] is hailed by many as the most realized vision of the vaporwave genre yet. Produced by Hong Kong Express and t e l e p a t h, it is a truly unique vision of electronic music that whilst indebted to the cyberpunk sprawl of Neuromancer its startlingly original and futuristic sounding. Imagine Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement transported to Los Angeles in November 2019 for an idea of whats on offer here. Killer wares for anyone into Black Rain and Oneohtrix Point Never and essential listening Blade Runners everywhere.
